Sail Boats

16 Years of Experience

The Sailing Association Mar Menor (SAMM) was formed in January 2006 and its purpose is to provide a meeting point for sailors in the area, and try to help solve problems experienced in keeping and sailing boats in the Mar Menor and Mediterranean.

SAMM does not offer professional training but has experienced members who can help novices to improve their skills.  You do need to be qualified to sail in Spain and help is given to Members to get their non-Spanish qualification endorsed by the Regional Authorities.  If you have no qualifications, help can also be given to get the basic Spanish “Titulo” which makes it legal for you to skipper a boat under 6 metres, with an engine of less than 40 Watts up to one nautical mile from the shore.

SAMM comprises individuals with their own boats, including larger Cruising Yachts, and Groups of people that jointly own different classes of boat. Day Sailers, both 18ft and 22ft, Dinghies and a Group with a Motorboat. SAMM also has an active Social Calendar and Race Programme, and welcomes non-members.
